The Premier League 2020 organizers’ plan to restart the 2019/20 season continues to face obstacles.
9 clubs are not sure to participate, the EPL 2020 is at risk of being canceled
According to Sun Sports, up to 9 teams at both top of the table admit they cannot force the players to play in the near future. These clubs said that players were worried about the risk of infection during the remainder of Premier League 2020 season.
Even a team has emailed the players to notify the restart of the season is not required. Players have the right to refuse to play if they feel uncomfortable and safe.
Premier League organizers need a minimum of 14 out of 20 votes in the next meeting to be able to make a decision to continue the 2019/20 season. If the above 9 teams do not change their views, the season is at high risk of being canceled.
Earlier, the British media reported that there were 6 clubs openly opposed to the decision to organize the rest of the Premier League 2020 in June, and these were all at the bottom of the rankings (Brighton, West Ham, Watford , Bournemouth, Aston Villa, Norwich).
Conflicts of interest have occurred between the top two Premier League 2020 tables. The “Big six” group (MU, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham, Man City and Arsenal) want the season to continue, and the positions of the champions, Champions League and relegation teams are still determined.
Meanwhile, the teams at the bottom of the rankings want the 2019/20 season to be empty of the champions’ name, no team dropped or promoted like the Dutch league.
6 Premier League clubs break plans to restart the 2019/20 season
Plans to organize the rest of the Premier League 2020 season are being met with opposition from several clubs.
The organizers of the Premier League is facing a big challenge because 20 clubs participating in the tournament are not reaching consensus, although it was previously announced that the season would restart after the disease was controlled.
According to the Daily Mail, six clubs disagree with the decision to restart the season and these are all teams at the bottom of the rankings (Brighton, West Ham, Watford, Bournemouth, Aston Villa, Norwich).
A conflict of interest occurred between the top two Premier League 2020 tables. The “Big six” group (MU, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham, Man City and Arsenal) want the season to continue, and the positions of the champions, Champions League and relegation teams are still determined. While the teams at the bottom of the table want the 2019/20 season to be empty of the champion’s name, there is no team down or promoted like the Dutch league.
Brighton’s CEO Paul Barber said the decision to host the tournament in 10 neutral pitches would jeopardize fairness. Apart from the aforementioned 6 clubs, the leaders of Crystal Palace Club are also not getting the consensus with the group leading the rankings.
Premier League will need a minimum of 14 votes to be able to continue to organize the season to identify key positions. The director of a club in the Premier League 2020 has called the attitude of the six teams above “intentional sabotage.”
